View Full Version : LW11 unify poly only after points are merged ?

Just noticed that:

- if I make a polygon (flat box)
- copy and paste that polygon into the same layer
- use Detail->Polygons->More->Unify Polys
= nothing happens ("No polygons eliminated").

- if I then use Merge Points
= I get four points but still have two polygons
- if I then use Unify Polys
= the two polys are merged into one

Is this like Unify Polys is expected to work (only merges Polys if they share the SAME points intead of SIMILAR points that have the same coordinates)?

In a word. Yes.

For it to unify unconnected polygons it would also have to incorporate a merge points operation and the effect of this could produce undesirable results.

It's always been a 2 step thing, merge your points and then unify the polygons.
